The Moon's Hasselblad Camera Sells For Nearly a Million

This Hasselblad 500 has been to the moon and back, so it is no wonder it just got sold for a shocking $910,000. Shocking because it could have probably fetched more.
Perhaps it was because it wasn't the FIRST camera to reach the moon. Neil Armstrong's camera was the first, but it wasn't the first to make it back.
The rest were left behind due to their bulk and weight; this one, which was used on the Apollo 15 mission in 1971, was lucky enough to make the return journey.
The camera was purchased for 550,000 euros which, combined with auction expenses, means the camera cost 660,000 euros total—or just over $910,000 at today's exchange rates. The buyer was Terukazu Fujisawa, founder of Japan's Yodobashi Camera retail chain. [AP]
